In September 1977, NASA launched Voyager I from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The craft carried a golden record that contained a message to aliens from the people of Earth. Here's what it said. You can now own your own version of the golden record by contributing to a Kickstarter campaign by Ozma Records. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Comments

INEVITABLE K A I : 99 years later alien response back by saying "Send me nude".

Rahul Gupta : Even humans couldn't decode this message.

Agha Petros : Why does everyone automatically assume aliens are super intelligent? what if they just sit around and headbut each other to death and if they get the disc they just eat it?

Cha Shu Bao the Pomeranian : Pawn Stars: "I'll give you 5 bucks for it"

Casey : 20,000 years from now the record is found and becomes the biggest club hit that civilization has known

Joseee Delacerna : Imagine sending the best memes compilation out in space for the aliens to decrypt

Arosifu : Alien : woah what's this? Message : *_you was at the club_* Alien : wtf??

Trįñįtÿ Åłvãręž : nobody: aliens: ƜнΛŤ'ら Цþ ௱ØŤнƐ尺FЦㄈҚƐ尺ら нØƜ'ら ɪŤ ŁɪҚƐ ŤØ ϦƐ ƐχŤɪЛㄈŤ
